National, World Leaders Vote to End Human Right Violations Against LGBT Persons; [Barf Alert]
U.S. Newswire ^ | 11/21/2005

Posted on 11/21/2005 2:09:12 PM PST by ncountylee

WASHINGTON, Nov. 21 /U.S. Newswire/ -- LGBT elected and appointed leaders from across the United States and around the world passed an historic resolution in Seattle this weekend at the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Conference calling upon "all nations and governments to adopt a vocal, clear and consistent policy on international human rights abuses against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people that includes a call on other countries to abolish sodomy laws."

Attendees, some who traveled from as far away as Sri Lanka and Poland, vowed to continue to bring attention to the horrific record of some countries on this issue. For instance:

-- There are reports that in Iran more than 4,000 citizens have been executed since 1979 because they are gay or lesbian;

-- In Malaysia, "carnal intercourse against the order of nature" is punishable by up to 20 years' imprisonment and whipping; and

-- Being gay in Saudi Arabia can lead to jail terms or even beheadings.

The conference is a program of the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute, the non-profit sister organization of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund. The leaders also approved a resolution to "encourage all LGBT legislators and all other LGBT public officials to be open and honest about their sexual orientation or gender identity or expression so that their input on future legislation and proposals will be enhanced by a freedom to share both unique and common professional and personal life experiences with their colleagues and the constituents they represent."

"These resolutions reflect the quality of the discussions that occurred and the seriousness of the issues discussed. As the LGBT community continues to gain voices at all levels of policy- making and implementation, it's incumbent that we continue to speak up for those whose voices are silenced in countries that deny them rights simply because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender," says Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund and Leadership Institute President and CEO Chuck Wolfe.

The Gay & Lesbian Leadership Conference was presented by the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Institute in collaboration with the International Network of Lesbian and Gay Officials.

The host committee co-chairs were State Rep. Ed Murray (Washington) and City Council Member Dan Baker (Long Beach, California). Attendees also heard from Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire and U.S. Reps. Barney Frank and Tammy Baldwin.

I can see it now:

"The chair recognizes congressman Franks"

Franks: "I like taking it up the butt so you should listen to me when I say that we need to raise taxes"

How does practicing sexual perversion increase anyone's credibility?

Chuck Wolfe is the president and CEO of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund and Leadership Institute, the nation’s leading organization that recruits, trains and supports openly lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender candidates, campaign staff and officials. The organization is nonpartisan and works at the federal, state and local levels. He is responsible for the organization’s strategic planning and has put in place an aggressive growth plan, which includes building a presence in 13 “Horizon states” that lack any openly gay or lesbian public officials.




http://www.aen.org/images/people/chuck.wolfe.jpg




Mr. Wolfe has an extensive background in politics, issue advocacy and organizational development. He previously served as executive vice president and chief operating officer of the American Legacy Foundation, which was created as a result of the 46-state settlement with the tobacco industry. Mr. Wolfe was the Foundation’s first employee and initiated programs such as the renowned TRUTH campaign. He has emerged as a leading authority in the public health movement to reduce the devastating effects of tobacco use. Numerous media outlets, including 60 Minutes, have featured his efforts; the National Tobacco Control Conference, the National Governor’s Association, the National Conference of State Legislatures and the American Cancer Society have showcased his expertise; and several state governments and national campaigns have sought his counsel.

Mr. Wolfe entered the public and non-profit sector as an appointee to the late Florida Governor Lawton Chiles. In addition to serving on the governor’s 1994 reelection campaign as operations manager, he served the governor for seven years in such capacities as director of external affairs, director of tobacco control and executive director of the Miami Financial Oversight Board. During his tenure, among numerous other achievements, Mr. Wolfe developed and implemented programs that aided the relief efforts of Hurricane Andrew, the City of Miami’s financial emergency and the Florida Tobacco Pilot Program.


Mr. Wolfe, an Eagle Scout, has a long history of leadership within the Boy Scouts of America, including a two-year term on the National Executive Board. For over ten years he has been active and outspoken in the effort to rid scouting of its discriminatory policies towards gays and lesbians.

Mr. Wolfe is a 1985 graduate of Stetson University in Florida and completed the Negotiating Skills Seminar at the J.F.K. School of Government of Harvard University in 1997. A native of Florida, he moved to Washington, D.C. in 1999, and is an active member of the Foundry United Methodist Church.

The Muslims won't comply. If the LGBT try to enforce the anti-homosexual abuse laws through the UN, they just might destroy each other. The rest of America could just watch.

Eh, it's only a thought.

"Once people serve with an openly gay or lesbian officeholder, they become comfortable and knowledgeable," he says. "That's the way politics work -- it's the relationships that get things done. If we truly want equality, it's going to happen because we're sitting there at the table with these relationships and able to get things done."



MW: What's the main thing that a candidate needs to be trained for to keep it (gay/lesbian) from becoming a negative issue for them?

WOLFE: Message, message, message. You have to truly know what your message is going to be and how to stay on that message. If anybody tries to divert you, you answer the question quickly and succinctly, and connect it to your message. It is consistent delivery of your message that will break through and help a candidate get elected. It's those candidates we're after, the ones who can break through whatever's thrown at them and stay on message.

If this doesn't clearly speak to the masses, I don't know what will. Homosexuals get into the government solely to advance the anti family dogma. We need to start preventing them from being elected, and get those who were already given the benefit of the doubt, out.

I have never voted one in, personally. But a lot of people have given these people the benefit of the doubt. Clearly what they lack in judgment in their personal lives, carries over to political lives too.

Well well well, he succeeded in demonizing good decent people in the eyes of the general public, smokers. He learned well how to sell lies. Now he puts those lessons to work to demonize anyone who believes in wholesome traditional values. Decent Americans and their families are under attack now, just as tobacco was.

First I am going to state that pie chart is probably correct.

Now, would you happen to have a further break down of the people in that study between those who had multiple sexual partners over the course of five years, versus those who have only had one sexual partner over the course of five years?

The Gay leadership have stated loudly and clearly what they intend for this country.

They have stated that they want to make illegal for boys to like girls or girls to like boys. They want to crush out any sign of masculinity in males and reeducate anyone who doesn't buy their lies. They have declared as much from their platforms.

I know. One has to wonder when enough conservative are going to grow some, and do something to stop it. Looks they are finally rallying in Canada. Payers to them for that.

We did in the 2004 elections, but for some reason, the surge hasn't continued. Maybe it's because we did, and the homosexuals and their activists have stepped up their rhetoric, it just seem like we aren't gaining much ground. But that could be because I have a view of it all from MA.

No Paul, All I know is according to the CDC homosexuals are responsible for 2/3 of all reported cases of HIV/AIDS in the USA albeit they only represent 1-3% of the general populace.

If you have a point to prove, do your own research like I did and post your facts.

No, I strongly doubt that. Even if the entire human race was suddenly befallen with "LGBT" conditions, there would still be those who "discriminated" and "harassed" and were "violent" and whatever.

These people are irrational. They cannot implement some sort of world order to penalize human reactions because it would then cause their very numbers (the "LGBT"s) to go extinct, or, whichever worked more efficiently toward that end, given the limitations to reproduction.

Oh, I forgot to add that I'd wager that truth be known 99 % of all the women whom are diagnosed with HIV/AIDS Transmitted via "heterosexual sex" were infected by gay/bisexual men.

The AIDS epidemic among heterosexuals in the USA is nonexistent on the scale observed in the queer community.

Using your formula, how do the numbers work out for the gay folks in the study? Ten out of twelve?

I was speaking of the US population as a whole. In the USA AIDS is primarily a homosexual community plauge. Mathmatics do not lie.

"Primary" yes, but not the only "sole" community. And thus you cannot disreguard the disease in the hetrosexual community as well.

Heterosexual women are getting infected with HIV from bisexual/homosexual men that get AIDS on the downlow.

Who are the heterosexual men getting it from? I think that most of them lie. A large percentage of the heterosexual aids statistics are still a direct result of the gay/sodomite culture. And should be attributed to and labled as such.

No. I actually think that 8% of hetrosexuals in that piechart was composed of sodomites who lie about how they got infected. IOW you can go ahead Shuffle MOST of those 8%on over to the MSM (Men having Sex with Men) numbers.

I THINK you are going for -- and going, and going for -- your need to declare over and over again that heterosexuals are infected with the virus that causes AIDS. And that those who have infected them, the heterosexuals, were in turn infected with the virus by other male who in turn were, etc. That -- as you seem to need to suggest here, and repeatedly -- that there are some heterosexuals who are infected with the virus that causes AIDS because those who have infected them via heterosexual contact have been involved in homosexual sexual contact (and thereby contracted the virus from another or other homosexuals).

Yes, most of us adults know that, as do some teenagers also realize. And that is that some people have sexual contact with both males and females.

Some heterosexual) men also have sexual contact with prostitutes of both genders. Some heterosexual men also have sexual contact with female heterosexuals who have the virus, who caught it from (whomever).

We KNOW that the virus long ago crossed into the blood supply and many heterosexuals who don't even HAVE sexual contact with ANYone also were infected with the virus.

However, MOST HOMOSEXUAL MALES are known to engage in multiple partner sexual contact, some even all together. Many homosexuals engage in indiscriminate, impersonal sexual contact with anyone they can and without precautions...whatever. It's the lifestyle and sexual behavior that homosexuals engage in that is far "riskier" and of higher profile than other humans that's the issue because THE RATE OF TRANSMISSION among MALE HOMOSEXUALS is higher, far higher, than others.

And that, too, has long since been established. If you need to see it written here that there are some people who claim to be heterosexuals, who are engaging in sexual contact with females, but which males are secreting homosexual contact with other males, yes, we KNOW that. Most people recognize that there are some human beings who are not reliable on an intimate level. Most of us KNOW that as part of maturation.

Which is another reason why marriage between a man and a woman in and with conscience and morality and fidelity to the relationship is so important. And most people know that already, too.

The Pie Chart business...what informaton can YOU provide out of that wedge of homosexual males who are infected with the virus that indicates they are infecting, also, females? Is that what you need to establish? If so, then go establish it.

Transmission of the virus that causes AIDS and any other blood born/boidly fluid born virus, via the intestines, via all mucous membranes, is far easier than via the female vagina.

The act of sodomy, also, deteriorates the immune system, even when the virus that causes AIDS is not involved. There is an entire series of events that occurs over time by repeated acts of sodomy and it accomplishes the deterioration of the immune system. Ask your doctor for the details.

What with the general approval (by libs) of the Brokeback Mountain film and the continuing attempts to legitimize the illegitimate, now's a good time to intensify our responses to the homo-lesbian-weirdos of the world and defeat any legislature that attempts to make them acceptable and legal.

You have posted a lot of broad words like 'conscience' and 'morality' in your post, yet you give no examples of what you mean by 'conscience' and 'morality'. Would you please be more detailed and add some substance to your previous comments.

The problem actually deals more with people having multiple sexual partners over the course of a few years, than 'homosexuality' in the concept of sexual attraction to someone of the same gender.

In other words, the problem is that people are not careful about who they have sex with.
